Money saving ideas for Entrepreneurs (or anyone for that matter)

Let me let you into a secret, I’m a bit cheap.  Superman had Kryptonite, I have freebies.  In these times of recession, I thought I would share a few of my money saving ideas.  These are specific to business, but are applicable to just about anyone.

Keep Rent Cheap

My office is in the Truman Brewery, Brick Lane, East London.  My unit is cheap as it does not have any windows.  Units with windows cost twice as much and are baking in summer.

Use Voip Phone Systems

I run my business using voipfone, an internet based phone system.  Each number costs me £1 per month as opposed to £10 with BT.

Outsource work to India

I have save £1000 by outsourcing development work and product listing creation to the Far east.  Use sites like eLance to find good, cheap workers.

Cash Back Credit Cards

My credit card pays me 1% cashback on everything I spend.  This year I stand to get several thousand pounds for doing exactly nothing.

Google Apps

I use Google Apps to run my company intra net and email for free.

    Very useful, but too short! More tips please 🙂
    I’d add Vista Print for stationery and using students as volunteers (web designers, graphic designer) who would do anything for the experience these days!
